J Clin Exp Dent. 2017 Apr 1;9(4):e595-e598. doi: 10.4317/jced.53373. eCollection 2017 Apr.


The neuronal disorders occurring in the oral district are mainly anaesthesia, paraesthesia, hypoesthesia and hyperaesthesia and they may occur frequently after surgical procedures. Medical treatment depends on degree of severity of the nerve injury but, in every case, it must be immediately carried out to reduce immune inflammatory reaction. The aim of this report is to investigate the effectiveness in the recovery of the peripheral nerve lesions of a new laser device recently proposed by the commerce that, due to its reduced size and to be a class I laser according the ANSI classification, may be used at home by the patient himself. Three different cases were treated with this "at-home approach": complete resolution of symptomatology was obtained after laser treatment with a good compliance for the patient and without reporting any side effect. Key words:Laser, biomodulation, low level laser therapy, oral neuronal disorders, at-home treatment, paresthesia.
